What do artists think about the city they live in, wherever that might be, and what does it mean to them? At Illiterate Gallery, a new show, Mile High on the Map, cast a few clues on the Denver point of view. We hit the opening on Friday night. Take a look:
Andrew Hoffman's Denver skates down East Colfax Avenue, as related by his smart poster and deck duo.
Steven Prochyra's Denver experience is expressed on a woodcut cleverly printed on a grid of light rail tickets.
For Sander Lindeke and Emily Hinson, Denver is an unfinished embroidery. Think about it.
According to Scot LeFavor, Denver is a place where we swill brews.
Rob Mack's Denver is historical and iconic.
Jouvert's Denver is a stop on the highway.
Ruben Gaucin's Denver is desolately post-apocalyptic.
Chris Cox's Denver is big, blue, alien and ugly. What can we do about that?
See Mile High on the Map through December at Illiterate, 82 S. Broadway.
